The scenario is something like this :-
The server is in say Australia.
The user can log onto a server from any location.
I need to get the timezone info from user's request(HTTPServletRequest) &
display dates based on this timezone.
From HTTPServletRequest i can get the locale info but how can i get the Timezone info ?
Any help on this would be highly apprciated .

See if it works.
